**B-Roll Footage and Storm Photos Available**
Lake Tahoe, CA & NV (Mar. 22, 2011) - The calendar may say that spring has sprung, but winter is still alive and well in Lake Tahoe as skiers and snowboarders are chest deep in powder thanks to winter storms that have delivered over 100 inches of snow over a four-day period. With season snowfall totals now over 50 feet, Lake Tahoe is enjoying its snowiest winter in the last quarter century and the best may still be yet to come as forecasters are calling for continued accumulations to be measured in feet through the remaining days of March.
"The Ski Lake Tahoe resorts are on pace for a record shattering season thanks to the best spring skiing conditions in recent memory," said John Wagnon, president of Ski Lake Tahoe. "If guests have yet to decide on a destination for a spring skiing vacation, the current conditions in Lake Tahoe make for an obvious choice."
This latest round of powerful storms has bolstered base depths well over 200 inches resulting in a number of Ski Lake Tahoe resorts announcing the extension of their operating seasons, with skiing going well into May. Known for its legendary spring skiing scene, Lake Tahoe will take things to another level this year with pool parties, pond skimming contests and world-class events and competitions slated throughout the spring season. The party atmosphere will continue well after the lifts stop turning with themed après activities, outdoor parties, big-name entertainers and 24/7 non-stop entertainment at resort casinos on both shores of the lake.
The spring season in Lake Tahoe brings with it unbeatable deals on every aspect of a dream ski vacation including stay-and-ski packages starting as low as $49 per person. The seven Ski Lake Tahoe resorts have announced a number of discount packages designed for both families and college students headed to the slopes with an emphasis on added value and one-of-a-kind experiences. Destination travelers can also take advantage of discount air carriers offering reduced fares into the Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RTIA).
